The list of Wellington Phoenix departures has continued to grow, with Australian import David Williams confirmed to leave the A-League club.

The striker scored 11 goals in 27 games this past season, which included a hat-trick against the Newcastle Jets.

The Phoenix have confirmed both club and player were interested in securing a new deal, but ultimately Williams decided to pursue opportunities in Australia.

While his next club remains a mystery, Newshub understands Williams has several offers from other A-League clubs.

Williams joins Roy Krishna, Spanish midfielder Mandi, goalkeeper Filip Kurto, utility Max Burgess and coach Mark Rudan as part of a mass end-of-season exodus from the club.

All White goalie Stefan Marinović joined the club as a free agent last week, as a replacement for Kurto.
